A family reunion on my DH's side late last summer found me plunked on a weathered picnic table bench digging through boxes and boxes of vintage family photographs. I'm certain I proved to be the obnoxious in~law in my attempt to find out who was who, when was it taken, who was behind the lens, and the most dreaded for those who have no appreciation for preserving the past: "Don't you WANT this????!!!!" I carried on, undeterred, a woman on a mission to preserve the past....upon finding this mini~album I dared to ask yet one more time. The answer:
"I think that was New Years Eve, maybe, then again, it could have been just another typical basement bar~room bash....we did that, back then, you know. We had bars in our basements...."
